The Farm Water Program led by the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (CMA) will receive $43.7 million as part of the on-farm irrigation efficiency program announced this week by the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments. This was part of the agreement between these Governments to deliver the nation's largest irrigation infrastructure renewal project.The irrigation efficiency project will generate 20 GL of water savings by investing in on-farm irrigation infrastructure upgrades for surface and pressurised systems. 10 gigalitres (GL) of the water savings will be consolidated and transferred to the Commonwealth for the environment. The remaining 10 GL will be allocated to irrigators participating in the project who will also contribute $4.9 million.
